Yea but you want to take out inflammation sbecause if you don't its consistently damaging your skin. It's been 1 year since I have used Psoria. I believe I have started it January of this Year. So it will be 1 year very soon.
I am not sure if I am at a state where I should be congratulated, but I have definitely improved. I still have long long ways to go. My mother and I were discussing this today also and she said she was very shocked to see my photos. ( She has been snooping around my ipad and saw photos that I sent to Dr. H)
I plan on going to visit Dr. H soon. I am going to have a list of questions to ask her when I visit. Especially about this thick lizard like skin and cobble texture that seems to have gotten worse in last 3 years ( Post laser damage) It's really a question for me because my face was intact, and I was (Without any exaggeration) red as a tomato and I saw bloods moving around inside the face. He burned the inside of the face and left my outer intact. So I am hoping the damages are moving up into the surface, but I am sure our skin is wayyy more complicated than that. I will have to say though. My face used to have this ashy color very weird, but it's gotten better. I feel like my outer ligning of the skin is building up that;s why? The werid shinny texture improved and When I wear make-up it used ot look so much worse, but it's not as bad as it was before so I can actually wear some make up.
MMP, I use Baby Shampoo for my hair, Absolutely no cologne. I use Neutrogena glycerine soap. She wnats me to use the Bar Soap, but I have been using liquid. I don't like bar soap at all, but she is veyr big on using less of the soap. She said that's why she wanted me to use the bar because the liquid allows u to use so much more of it she said.
I was on Retin-A 1 year post my damage from laser, but I got damaged from Retin-A too. I think I didn't handle it well and I just put on too much. In the beginning it was a miracle cure for mea nd I am still glad I did it, but I wish I did Psoria first and perhaps very mild form of retin-A very sporadically, instaed of so religiously. Dr. H does not allow me to use Retin-A because I have major photo sensitivity issue. And as you alreayd probably know Retin-A makes youre skill very sensitive to light. I am still very irritated from Laser and Retin-A so I am just trying to baby my skin. If my face every return some what normal, I might ask Dr. H to see if she would give me a very mild form so I can try it. I do love the cream and believe its good, but because our skin is not normal, you just have to be very careful with it. And there are people on this forum, even without laser that have been very daamged my retin-A so. it's definitely something to think about. And be very cautious if you ever want to try retin-A.
